The Maricopa Community Colleges and Arizona State University have a strong history of developing collaborations and partnerships to support transfer student success. Maricopa and ASU have committed to create a student-centered "culture of transfer." A key component of the Alliance is the MAPP (Maricopa-ASU Pathways Program). The MAPP provides incentives for students who complete an AGEC and associate's degree through an articulated degree-to-degree transfer program. You must see your community college advisor to sign up for a MAPP in order to take advantage of the benefits.
The program guarantees acceptance into ASU and seamless transfer of credits if the students agree to complete their community-college coursework in three years. One major incentive is a tuition guarantee. When a student signs up for the Maricopa-ASU Pathway Program, tuition to ASU is frozen, regardless of how much tuition increases for other incoming ASU students in those three years.
Northern Arizona University offers programs to Maricopa students locally, online, and in Flagstaff.
